How Native Indians Harvested Buffalo

I was browsing Camping, a sponsor of Modern Survival, and came across this interesting DVD which may be very informative for those who would like to know (see) how the native Indians would harvest a Buffalo, including skinning, butchering, and tools used to do so.

As the old saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words, and this DVD which shows and tells how to harvest an animal while using primitive tools, is worth more than that…


In this Buffalo Butchers Survival DVD Ron Hood takes you to Salmon, Idaho to visit professional wilderness instructors Joe and Denyce Bigley of Salmon Outdoor School. With the help of Lakota-Sioux and local butcher, Dallas Dupree, they harvest a Buffalo and show you the steps Native American’s have taken to harvest, process and use almost every part of the animal.

Learn how to skin the animal starting at the back, how to butcher it using both stone and steel tools, how to preserve the brain for brain-tanning at a later date, how to remove and prepare tendons for sinew, how to prepare the stomachs for use as a cooking vessel. Additionally learn how to make an expedient stone tool for skinning and butchering… and much, much more. This DVD shows graphic scenes. (You have probably seen more graphic scenes on many nature programs on TV.)1 hr. 25 min. 28 chapters DVD

Believe it or not, I was so impressed with this series of videos that it was one of the reasons I started Being a former Marine and outdoors enthusiast, I greatly appreciate the excellent job Ron and Karen Hood do of sharing their vast knowledge of camping and survival skills. However, despite all that they teach in every video, I still find them to be very entertaining as well. These videos are so enjoyable that they make me long for Spring even before winter has started! Buy one and I guarantee you’ll want to buy them all!
